“Asigra Cloud Backup v11 is the first cloud backup product designed to protect storage, servers, desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones — a range of functionality that reduces if not eliminates the need for backup point products,” noted Storage Magazine/ editors. “Asigra is first backup software provider to offer a product with the ability to provide end-to-end enterprise protection from the data center to the smartphone.”

Asigra was recognized in the awards for a number of industry firsts and capabilities designed to address the complexity and cost of managing and protecting a diverse range of IT environments. Storage Magazine highlighted this by saying “Asigra’s software can be deployed as an on-premises private cloud backup solution, a hybrid cloud backup solution for local and offsite backup, or as a pure public cloud backup app. The protection provided by Asigra is device agnostic and can be installed as a virtual machine. V11 also offers a new Web management portal and an automated licensing scheme. The company’s Cloud License Server allows managed service providers (MSPs) to remotely authenticate and update users’ licenses.”

Examining performance improvements of the solution, the publication cited a number of enhancements, including “400% improvement in throughput over previous versions, support for 10 Gbps local-area network (LAN) interfaces, and data read/write acceleration with multi-threaded data dedupe, parallel processing for read I/O and data throughput, multiple overlapped I/O and delta differencing.”

“Our goal is to focus organizations on what data protection is really all about, data recovery,” said David Farajun, CEO for Asigra. “We are thrilled that Storage Magazine has recognized the unique advantages our solution brings. Asigra offers a multi-dimensional solution that can reside in and protect physical and virtual environments simultaneously while being device agnostic to protect all instances of data throughout an organization, substantially reducing data protection management requirements.”
